WAOPS signed on with 31 other osteopathic associations in support of the Strengthening Medicare for Patients and Providers Act. The letter was sent out from the American Osteopathic Association to Representatives Ruiz, Bucshon, Bera and Miller-Meeks and reminded them that the legislation would apply a permanent inflation-based adjustment to the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) which would provide stability to providers delivering essential care to Medicare beneficiaries and help ensure that patients have access to timely and high-quality care.
The letter went into further detail regarding what this would continue to mean for providers and patients, and emphasized that the Strengthening Medicare for Patients and Providers Act would provide transformative stability to the Medicare payment system. The message concluded with thanking the representatives for their leadership on this essential issue.
